    Steel Challenge Team Handicapping

    We have a regular group that I shoot with during the week and Wednesday night is Steel Challenge.

    There is a lot of "friendly" competition between the members on our squad which usually results in somebody buying cheeseburgers or beer or ice cream, depending on who wins/loses. Every now and then we have all of them show up at the same time.

    I decided to put together two squads to shoot against each other and as I see all of these people every week and most matches, I gave it my best shot (sorry, no pun intended) and put together two reasonably even teams.

    Team Ruggles had mostly Ruger pistols, a red dot rifle and a ported handgun.

    Team Victory was running S&W Victory pistols, a Glock and something that I just couldn't figure out. The other team was cheating with a rifle and some pistol with an optic and port job.

    I demand a reshoot next week!

    Caleb,

    This particular 4 stage Steel Challenge match is run every Wednesday night at the Hansen Range (between Cape Coral and Punta Gorda).

    Monday night is the 4 stage IDPA match and Thursday night is the 4 stage USPSA match.

    We are extremely lucky to have this outdoor facility with excellent stadium lighting for those winter months when it gets dark at 6pm, our usual starting time.

    $10 to shoot the matches. Weekend matches are 8 stage affairs and start at 9am. $20 for members, $25 for non-members for the weekends.

    A very good group of people to shoot with for sure.

    During the season it's gets pretty full early so we've gone to the Practiscore registration for most matches.

    https://www.practiscore.com/hansen-w...match/register

    However, a lot of the snow birds are leaving so if you don't register in advance, you'll get set up with no problems as a walk-up.

    See you Wednesday. I'll be there with my usual motley crew of motorcycle hoodlums and old farts on Squad 3. I'll be running with the PCC this week in Open (PCCO).
